What should I know about ClickMagick’s direct integrations?


There’s really not much to it – simply enable the integrations as needed based on the features you want to use.

With that being said, here’s what you should know about each …


Facebook Ads

The Facebook Ads integration allows ClickMagick to automatically retrieve your ad cost data from Facebook Ads.

When you enable the integration, the Facebook user that you authenticate with will determine which ad account( you can integrate with ClickMagick.

As you can confirm while performing the integration, integrating with Facebook Ads will provide ClickMagick with read-only access to the selected ad accounts, which allows us to retrieve your ad cost data.


Google Ads

The Google Ads integration allows ClickMagick to automatically retrieve your ad cost data from Google Ads.

When you enable the integration, the Google user that you authenticate with will determine which ad accounts you can integrate with ClickMagick, and what type of access ClickMagick has to your account.

Unlike Facebook Ads, the Google Ads API doesn’t allow ClickMagick to request read-only access to your account (which is all we really need to retrieve your ad cost data).

The default scope, which you’ll see during the integration, is that ClickMagick will technically receive read-write access to the integrated Google Ads accounts. And while we have no need for write access to your account, this technically does allow ClickMagick to “change stuff” in your Google Ads account if we wanted to.

Or as Google’s integration windows says, “This will allow ClickMagick to Manage your Adwords campaigns.”

If you prefer, however, there is a way to provide ClickMagick with the read-only access we need. Here’s how …

1. Set up a new Google account to use for this integration.

2. Invite this new Google “user” to your Adwords account, giving it only read access.

3. When performing the integration in ClickMagick, authenticate using the Google user you created in Step 1 above.
